Raketech - Interim Report Q3 2019
STOCKHOLM, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
THIRD QUARTER 2019
FIRST NINE MONTHS OF 2019
EVENTS DURING THIRD QUARTER 2019
SUBSEQUENT EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE THIRD QUARTER
CEO MICHAEL HOLMBERG COMMENTS ON THE QUARTER
"In the third quarter, both revenues and the number of NDCs increased compared to the previous quarter, despite a continued challenge in the Swedish gaming market. We have a positive underlying revenue development with an increased revenue share, which drives recurring revenues - however, this will come into full effect during the upcoming years. During the quarter, we continued to focus on global expansion, with concrete progress in both Japan and Germany. All in all, this gives us confidence for the future, even though the result for the third quarter is unsatisfactory.
Our products continue to generate high traffic levels for our partners. The underlying NDC development is on par with the previous year, despite changing conditions in the Swedish market. The NDC growth of 7 percent compared to the second quarter shows strength in customer acquisition and traffic. I am glad that we can show a strong operating cash flow for the quarter of EUR 3.2 million, which is 41 percent higher than the corresponding period last year.
For the first time ever, Raketech's operations outside of the Nordic region accounted for 10 percent of the revenue mix, with contributions from Germany, Canada, New Zealand and Japan amongst others. This is thanks to the ongoing efforts to expand geographically.
In brief, the expansion strategy means that we will operate in at least three continents, and each continent will represent at least 10% of the company's revenues over time. This is a clear strategy that we are executing. I am certain that we will be successful in building a global company, with products in sports and gaming that serves operators, media companies and other businesses with a focus on responsible and user-focused services."
